TNMU as a powerful international player
International cooperation between universities is an integral part of the innovative development of higher education. Taking into account the development trends of modern education and science, the processes of globalization and regional integration, TNMU seeks not only national recognition, but also a high international status. That is why much attention is paid to international activities as one of the priority directions of the University’s development, which is aimed at integrating the educational institution into the European and world scientific and educational space.
In an effort to consolidate its international position, Ternopil National Medical University is constantly involved into increasingly globalized activities of well known and prestigious international organizations, being its direct member or cooperation partner. These international activities of our University are directed onto intensification of its research and teaching potential. Throughout many years of fruitful cooperation a lot of possibilities were created for our students and teachers to develop new professional skills and run international scientific projects.

Active international cooperation with educational and scientific institutions, as well as healthcare institutions around the world, makes it possible to implement a number of international projects and the participation of university representatives in academic exchange programs for teachers and students.
